Happy HUMPday dolphriends!
Today on our afternoon trip, we encountered a Humpback whale located about 7 miles offshore. It mugged us and even got so close to the boat that we could smell its stinky breath and feel the mist from its spout!! The humpback whale was tail throwing and pec-slapping. Then, we sighted a pod of ~100 long-beaked common dolphins. The pod of LB common dolphins led us back towards the humpback whale for a few more breath cycles.

For our sunset trip, we quickly sighted a feeding frenzy which consisted of several types of seabirds such as elegant terns, California brown pelicans and western gulls. We also saw some long-beaked common dolphins and California sea lions. We travelled towards the drop-off and encountered several scattered pods of ~200 long-beaked common dolphins found throughout our trip. It is always a blast on the Pacific ocean with us! Please come and join us soon.
